Is a not-for-profit corporation, dedicated to preserving the birthplace and raising public awareness of the wide-ranging legacy of the great social reformer, Susan B. Anthony, who was a pioneering feminist and suffragist as well as a noteworthy figure in the abolitionist, opposition to Restellism (opposition to abortion), and temperance movements of the 19th century. As part of its mission, the Museum will highlight the familial and regional influences which shaped Ms.Anthony's early life, by displaying the textiles and furnishings of that period, as well as the literature and other memorabilia associated with her later career. « less

This was a must on my list since I had visited SenecaFalls, NY where the suffragist movement took hold. This museum is a gem. The docent, Brian, was very informative and looking through all the memorabilia filled in the very early years of SBA. Definitely worth a trip to see it, especially if you're in the Williamstown area. All you... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable visit here, which is very reasonably priced, and the docent was very informative, letting us just wander around and look at/read the things on display. I'll have to get round to putting some photos and information on my blog sometime soon.

Susan B. Anthony was born in this house in 1820 and only lived here until 1826. You can tour the first floor with a tour or you can do a self guided tour. Much information about her life and causes especially women's suffrage. There are pictures, artifacts and examples of her writing. A very good place to visit in less... More

We toured this house on our recent visit to the Berkshires. The tour guide was a college intern and she did a very good job. We also had a nice chat with the Director and discussed some financial issues and future of the house. We learned a lot about Susan that most Americans probably do not know. It is a... More

We had our own private guided tour from a very informed docent/historian. I could have continued to hear stories from him for another hour, easily. I thought to myself, "what a shame they don't have more visitors because it was a very worthwhile visit." We learned so much about Susan, her family, and other very interesting facts about Adams, Mt.... More

This is a small farmhouse attraction that is beautifully restored. There is a farmhouse, gift shop and small garden. The building is filled with artifacts that depict what her early life would have been like and one of the rooms highlights her impact on women’s rights, specifically the right to vote. Worth the time if you are in the area.

This is a wonderful little museum that has been painstakingly restored and depicts the early life of Susan B. Anthony. It's worth the trip to Adams for a trip back in time to see the contributions of Susan B., and the impact she had on women's rights.

This small home is the birthplace of Susan B. Anthony, a fascinating and important figure in American history. The story of the her life (and that of her parents) was ably told--both by creative curatorial choices and a great tour guide who really made their lives and time period come alive--even for my three teenagers.

This museum is walkable from Mount Greylock Inn where we stayed. There are guided tours (but check the hours before going). The curator/docent is amazingly well-informed about everything to do with Susan B. Anthony's life, and that of her parents and the area. There's a terrific gift shop, too. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

In Williamstown, we found a rack card for the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace and decided we had to make it part of our trip back to the NYC area. We were so glad we found it! The site is the old farmhouse that once belonged to the Anthony family. It's up on a hillside above Adams, MA. The curators have... More
